Mirror Lake...

Here is something I wanted to share....

Two weekends ago my hubby and I figured that we had better get in one more exploration hike before the weather changes and our fall schedules try to run amok. Our goal was a small little lake up on Mt. Hood called Mirror Lake. The weather was perfect and the scenery was breath taking. Here are just a couple of the shots that I took that day.

This was one of the first bridges we had to cross after we left the highway.
I was amazed at how quickly the noise of the highway
was dimmed by the dense tree growth.



The 1.5 mile short trail was very well maintained.
As we climbed in elevation, we encountered friendly chipmunks
looking for handouts and rhododendron bushes everywhere.


This bridge connected us with our end game.....the beauty of Mirror Lake.

Amazing! We walked all the way around the lake. Along the way we came across many people with their dogs going for a swim. There were also lots of people harvesting bucket loads of crawdads for their dinner.


I love this shot.
Do you see the tip top of Mt. Hood between the trees?
It was such a wonderful day.

  8. Joni...it would be great if you were here. Just imagine all of the great hikes and conversations.

    Alan...hopefully your weather will change soon and you can enjoy the great outdoors.
    Crawdads: some people call them crawfish. They are basically fresh water shrimp looking types of bottom dwellers.

    Carol...I am so glad you enjoyed. Hugs to you today.

    Alan...ok I will take a look.

    Polona...thank you for coming by and smiling my way today. Don't worry, there should never be any pressure to blog. I hope you have a wonderful holiday vacation. Will you be taking your camera?

    Crawdads: it sure doesn't sound appealing does it? Some people call them crawfish. I don't know of any other name for them. Basically they are fresh water shrimp.
